Cox talks about mobile wireless play

Citing the adage that "contrarian investors buy straw hats in winter," Cox Communications Wireless Vice President Stephen Bye defended the cable operator's decision to plow full steam ahead with its own mobile wireless play in 2009 and explained how he believes a cable operator, on its own, can enter into a highly competitive market in a suffering economy. During an interview with FierceWireless contributing editor Jim Barthold, Bye touched on subjects such as spectrum, Cox's relationship with Sprint and how Cox is doing something different than what its cable brethren have done as part of a Clearwire WiMAX play.
